    One last question.....how many eggs a year, on average, will she lay?

    I'm not sure. Game breeds like Old English Game aren't the greatest layers. I'd expect no more than 150 eggs or so.

    I'm pretty sure she is a Red Pyle Modern Game Bantam, not Old English. She has yellow legs and they are longer than the legs on an Old English. Do you have another pic of her?
